Flame Detector

February 14, 2007

Spectrex Inc., a maker of optical flame and gas detection and suppression systems, has launched its unique Hydrogen Flame Detector 20/20SH to address the need of a wide range of industrial and commercial facilities that use hydrogen fuel cells, hydrogen gas generators and hydroxyfuels.  Most of the existing optical flame detectors are designed for detection of hydrocarbon flames and are based on the fire’s CO2 emission but cannot detect the hydrogen flames that emit in the water vapor (H2O) band and have no emission in the CO2 range.  UV and some UV/IR optical flame detectors that can detect the hydrogen flame have a very limited range. Therefore, this special detector that includes sensors with special filters for the detection of hydrogen’s main combustion product, water vapor, at an extended detection range (100ft /30m) has been developed.
